There have been some great responses to my sister's dilemma with her dog Sadie. I think she has contacted some of you and I know she greatly appreciated all the advice. Needless to say, I learned some interesting things about blue merles and dog behavior that I didn't know!
I had also read my friend's post over at Adventures of a Horse Crazed Mind, about a similar situation she is going through with her horse Shaunti. Tough, tough, tough.... brought out my tears.....my heart goes out to her. You know, I read a quote in a magazine tonight. It was a response by Dave Matthews in regards to the death of one of his band mates last month. It was, "It's easier to leave than be left." I think that is so true. So many emotions center around letting something or someone go.
For now, I am curled up on the couch with a hot mug of peach tea, a box of Cheez-Its, and the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy. It's almost the weekend.....sigh (with relief.)
